Hello to my beautiful followers,
One of my long standing followers asked for me to share what I’ve been eating in a day while on low carb, high fat. To be honest its been such a learning curve! I didn’t realise so many things had carbs in it. I started my low carb journey about 3 months ago with the help of Vicky Kuriel’s 6 week low carb challenge.
In the first 6 weeks I lost just under 3 kilos. I probably could have lost more weight if I followed the guide more closely and had scales. Anyway post the 6 week challenge and I’m still adopting a low carb lifestyle. I’ve been regularly sharing my learnings and meals on Instagram Stories (I also have it saved under highlights- Low Carb) but here’s a recap for easy reference.
From Monday to Friday, I fast and don’t have breakfast. If you want a separate post about intermittent fasting please let me know.
On the weekends I tend to have a late brekkie with Ben. Below are my go to low carb brekkies.
Bacon and 2 scrambled eggs (excluding tomatoes and cheese). Approx 457 calories and 3 grams of carbs.
Cream cheese pancakes with sugar free maple syrup. Approx 402 calories and 3 grams of carbs. If you include any berries it will automatically increase the carb intake- but sometimes you just need to live a little.
Spinach, half a cucumber, half a small avocado, fetta cheese, chicken breast and sometimes a bit of olive oil as seasoning. Approximately 259 calories and 12 grams of carbs.
To be honest, I just chuck in whatever left overs I have. Protein is key, whether its chicken breast, left over mince, boiled eggs or fish. For fat I always have avocados and Fetta on hand. And the sneaky carbs to watch out for is in tomatoes and even in avocados- which still have quite a few carbs so don’t get carried away.
Sirloin Steak (approx 200 grams), steamed broccoli and butter. Approx 497 calories and only 6 grams of carbs.
Creamy prawn “pasta” using Slendier. Approx 442 calories and 6 grams of carbs.
I hope you have enjoyed me sharing my meals on the gram. Feel free to ask me any questions, but to be honest I’m still learning. Google really has been my best friend! So many keto and low carb recipes are easily available online.
